That we learn from a sure source, and not from rumor. What his aim may be, nobody is able to conjecture; but the Yankee papers have been for some time indulging in every manner of speculation with regard to the movements of Gen.

His reinforcements have been drawn from the Blackwater and Lee's force is nearly double what it was at the battle of Chancellorsville. His reinforcements have been drawn from the Blackwater and North and South Carolina. A large portion of them are new troops. Some of the new regiments number each from eight hundred to eleven hundred men. His command is divided into three corps, averaging, according to report, thirty thousand men each.

Unless Gen. Lee can take with him chloride of lime, tar, and other disinfectants in sufficient quantity to purify Sodom and Gomorrah, he would be exposing his noble army to all sorts of pestilences, of both body and soul, to quarter them in Washington.--That ciefit to mankind to capture the whole motley crew, from the contrabands down to the Cabinet and the President, and we should certainly advocate it if consistent with military policy and the sanitary condition of the army. These are matters which Gen. Lee must judge of; but, as at present advice, we would dread bringing our soldiers into contact with such a standing pond of corruption as the Federal capital.

Lee announces a great victory, he does not announce that he has pursued a flying enemy, or that he holds a foot of ground more than he did when Hooker began to move." The Star says: "The honest confession of disaster would be more dignified on are filling up, and Fremont will have his day. The Herald says that Hooker had no alternative but to retreat. The Morning Post observes that the Southern Generals have been censured for not following up their victories.
